The 2016 road safety statistics released by the European Commission show a drop of 2% in the number of fatalities. The statistics for the first time include numbers about people suffering serious injuries following accidents. An EU target to reduce serious injuries by 50% by 2030 has been agreed upon at this week's Road Safety Informal Council meeting in Malta, which Polis attended.
The Final SafetyCube Conference will reveal the SafetyCube Decision Support System (DSS). The DSS enables policy-makers to select and implement the most appropriate strategies, measures and cost-effective approaches to reduce casualties of all road user types and all severities in Europe and worldwide.
The European Road Safety Summer School is organised in Mechelen, Belgium by VSV (the Flemish Foundation for Traffic Knowledge), the Transportation Research Institute (IMOB) of Hasselt University, the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC), Polis and Road Safety GB.
